CBS – Sunday Morning

   COVER STORY: “Mike Wallace is here”
Four words that struck terror into the hearts of shady businessmen and corrupt politicians – “Mike Wallace is here” – also comprise the title of a new documentary that depicts the dramatic life and career of the legendary CBS News correspondent, whose no-holds-barred interview style and indefatigable showmanship helped make “60 Minutes” must-see TV.  Rita Braver talks with filmmaker Avi Belkin (who was granted unprecedented access to CBS News’ archives), and with Mike’s son, “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace, about building a career in the footsteps of a giant.

ALMANAC: New York City’s Central Park
On July 21, 1853, hundreds of acres of land in the center of Manhattan were set aside for parkland, ultimately developed into one of the world’s most glorious public spaces. Lee Cowan reports.

The band ZZ Top is marking 50 years together, with a new remastered collection of their greatest hits, “Goin’ 50.” Jim Axlerod talks with guitarist Billy Gibbons, bassist Dusty Hill, and drummer Frank Beard (the one without a beard) who are still working hard to make their pedal-to-the-metal, bluesy country rock seem so easy.

And much more!
